FFA was founded in 1928 as the Future Farmers of America, in 1988 the organization changed its name to the National FFA Organization to represent the growing diversity of agriculture. Today, over 600,000 student members are engaged in a wide range of agricultural education activities, leading to over 300 career opportunities in the food, fiber and natural resources industry.

The difference you can make will allow us to continue conducting the many student leadership activities we host throughout the year culminating in the annual State FFA Leadership Convention, our largest event every year. Students travel from across the state to compete in over 14 career development events. These events bridge the gap between what is being taught in the classroom and what the students will need for successful future careers in the food, fiber, environmental, and natural resources industries. Our Career Development Events (CDEs) include Environmental & Natural Resources, Agriculture Mechanics, Public Speaking, Job Interview, Parliamentary Procedure, Marine Technology, Veterinary Science and more. This year we hosted a new event in Environmental & Natural Resources. This CDE incorporates five major areas which are soils, wildlife, aquatics, forestry, and recycling. The winner of each state CDE gets to represent Alaska at the National FFA Convention held in Indianapolis, Indiana in late October.
